GREEN EYED MONSTER

Helloo,

I'm not sure i've been up to too much more since I last posted, same old really. Trying to save save save which means no more online shopping for me. But obviously if something amazing just happens to pop up on Depop that I love that's OK... because i'm selling my clothes to make up for it. And then today AA sent me a 30% off voucher today, so this is also OK as i'm saving a whole £20 off the easy jeans, would be stupid not to... they're an investment piece anyway ;) Meh, I am trying and at least my wardrobe looks cute. =^ ^=

It's not often I wear anything simple or plain, yet this Fashion Union green slip dress with side split and back detail ticks quite a few of my boxes this spring teamed with a trusty chunky black heel.

What do you think? Less is more?

A CHANGE OF SCENERY

Hello,

Today I had a brain wave and realised there are some ugly old garages near my house that could look quite cool as a background, what do you think? Definitely better than my garden although the kitties don't get to make an appearance here.

As my friend said today, i'm literally 'the Queen of crops' pa ha ha. I own way too many of these but I feel that as quite a tall girl I suit high waisted bottoms/skirt with crops on top. Not very inventive but there you go... [Lashes of London] kindly sent me this super cute sequin number which although isn't too appropriate for the day, I thought a great piece for an evening. It's rare I would ever dream of hanging anything embellished with sequins anywhere near my body but thought this great high necked number was an exception to the rule.







Leather Jacket c/o Warehouse // Sequin Top c/o Lashes of London // Joni Jeans - Topshop £15ish // Platform Shoes - eBay £39.99 

What do you think of this outfit? I'm trying my hardest to get back into blogging, can't wait for some longer evenings.

POPPY LUX SPRING TIME

Hello Hi,

I see flowers, yay Spring has arrived. This means lighter evenings are in site and I can actually take blog photos after work. = ^ ^ =

I'm a huge Poppy Lux fan this season, I've got my eye on so many cute pieces that I can't wait to get for the summer. This dress is a great transitional piece, really comfortable and has the cutest cross back. I didn't actually brave it out with no tights today but i'm definitely ditching them soon, so bored of winter now. 










Floral Dress - c/o Poppy Lux // Black Sandals - New Look £30 // Necklace - Topshop £3 sale // Cardie - Monki £35 ish

You can never have too many floral dresses right?

SMILEY LONDON SS14 LAUNCH PARTY




Hii,

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Smiley blogger party on Thursday in Box Park Shoreditch. I love Box Park - it's got such a cool vibe and always temporarily houses the best brands! The event showcased their new SS14 collection. Before this launch I actually wasn't aware Smiley even designed such a diverse range of product, I obviously knew the symbol as the image of Acid House and association with rave culture but was new to all they have to offer!

I bumped into ultra babe Kayla Hadlington and we sipped gin and tonic and  lusted over a world of smiley tie dye, animal print and camouflage - all hot trends this SS14. Smiley's new collection is so fun: team a loud smiley tee with some vintage patterned harems for a chilled summer vibe.

Check out Smiley here:  http://www.smiley.com/ and make sure you grab something cool to wear this festival season! I can't wait to get ridiculously drunk on cider in the sun.

Massive thank you to Victoria and all the Smiley team for a great night and goodie bag.

Stay weird and keep smiling... :D

Jessie

VELVET WITCHCRAFT

Helloo,

I think i'm addicted to black, seriously. I love it. I love looking like a witch, this is probably my witchiest outfit yet. I'm a huge fan of bell sleeves, it adds such a bohemian vibe to any outfit which is perfect in my eyes. I purchased this Freak of Nature velvet dungaree dress from fellow blogger Stephanie's big cartel: shop here - She has amazing style so shop all her clothes!

I went to Frank & Doll's sample sale last week in Shoreditch and picked up some absolute beauts. I'm trying to invest more into great pieces from brands I love rather than old crap from Topshop. I'm trying to avoid the high street as much as possible these days and focus on crafting a slightly more individual style I guess. Brands like Mink Pink, Freak of Nature and Evil Twin are all so perfect at the moment I can't help but want their entire collections.










Bell sleeved top - Mink Pink £10 via Frank & Doll sample sale // Velvet Dungarees - Freak of Nature £15 via StephanieJW // Coat - Mink Pink £25 via Frank & Doll sample sale // Shoes - Vagabonds £80 via Office // Hamsa necklace - Primark £2 // Crystal necklace - Tentative Decisions prize

I'm trying to inject more floatiness, witchcraft and crystals into my wardrobe. Being a witch is fun.
